Acer announces the affordable Liquid Z410 with a 64-bit processor and LTE
In just 24 hours, our homepage will be crawling with new device announcements, but it's the quiet before the storm until then. Acer alone has so far gone for a reveal, and what we're treated to is a decent entry level handset that won't break the bank.

Enter the Liquid Z410 – a device that costs only €129 (~$155 equivalent) but packs some non-too-shabby hardware under its fine exterior. To start off, the device touts a rather compact, 4.5-inch display with a qHD resolution of 540 x 960 pixels (good for 245 ppi), and a 64-bit, quad-core MediaTek MT6732 with an ARM Mali-T760 GPU and support for Category 4 LTE (up to 150 Mbit downloads). At its back, the Z410 has a 5-megapixel camera with an LED flash, while up front there's a 2-megapixel selfie snapper with wide, 80-degree lens. The gadget is also outfitted with a front-facing speaker with DTS Studio Sound and a battery that Acer says will hold its ground for 5.5 hours of talk time or 400 hours of standby time. It is unclear which version of Android the Liquid Z410 runs on top of, but we do know that proprietary software (and hardware), such as the AcerRapid key (under the camera; gives you programmable shortcuts to actions) and Acer QuickTouch (gesture shortcuts) made the cut.

Finally, while Acer chose CES 2015 (which is taking place in Las Vegas) for the Liquid Z410's announcement, the device will actually only be sold in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) until further notice. Availability is expected at the end of February.

Yes they're serious. This is a low end device, so it's expected

The newer Moto G has a 5" 1280x720 display, with dual front facing stereo speakers, an 8mp rear camera, expandable storage, FM radio, and the latest lollipop is already rolling out.

I think 5.5 hour of talk time is too less .....

5.5 hours is horrendous. The average recent phone gets at least 3 times that.

Is ACER too confusing with ASUS? Or just being sarcastic?
